Re: The Hunger Games Discussion

I just finished re-reading The Hunger Games . I've read it before, read the sequels and have seen the movie(s). I'm just so impressed with the lucidity of the book and how it is written. Strictly seen through the eyes of Katniss, the story unfolds in a manner which could have been rather boring but ...

Re: Goldilocks and the Three Bears - Creative Task

Oh, the bears went picnicking! They went to where the bearberries were ripening and had a lovely time foraging amongst the low lying shrubs for the red berries. After getting all that were ripe, and noting when it would seem that more would ripen, they went to see what else was available for a snack...

Reminders to refs:

1) Please remember to turn off colour coding in your logs for the games. (This is a request from the person who is doing the coding for the Office, Dario, because the logs look nicer that way. )

This isn't a favorite recipe per se -- it is something in a story I was reading. The person, Sunny, was craving pickled beets.
